Alex Conway left this review about Saracens Head Hotel

The Saracens Head is set in a former Elizabethan coach house on the main high street in Southwell’s village centre. It is very striking from the outside with Tudor style black and white panelling. This is actually a fully functioning Hotel with a large restaurant/dining area and many rooms. The pub/bar is actually the bar to the hotel but has entrances for visitors and acts as a pub in its own right. Inside it is very small with a one oblong shaped room with tables and chairs running along the side and a larger space at the bottom with more seating. The smallish bar houses for hand pulls that are unfortunately from the Greene king stable with speckled hen Abbot and GK IPA available on my last visit. Because it was a scorcher of a day at it was at5 the hottest point of the day I Had a pint of Guinness at an unbelievably expensive £4.05 which was lovely and refreshing, my friend had the speckled hen and said it was ok. There is also a really nice patio garden along the outside of the pub with lots of lager tables and sun umbrellas as this is a sun trap. Although a bit over priced and a little small I thought this pub/bar had a lot of character as it doesn’t take a deal to fill it up. It is a good addition to a crawl around Southwell and aside from the poor GK ales this is a place I rather liked and would recommend stopping off if ever around the area.

This elizabethan coaching house was well worth a visit for it's comfortable and relaxing atmosphere and good food. The interior is full of nostalgia and two of their rooms have ghosts. Have to say the bar could do with a bit of haunting to liven it up. Not really much goin on there GK IPA and Abbott.

The Saracens Head is a really nice looking black and white pub that is quite old.
The pub still has its old coaching entrance and there is a nice courtyard through this entrance,we went in a bar to the left,this room was quite nice with an olde worlde feel to it,there were other rooms but we did'nt look in these.
This pub is now a Greene King tied house and there were two real ales on the bar we had a drink of GK IPA which was decent enough,the other beer was Gk Abbot.
This is a nice old pub that is worth a visit but it is let down with its beers on the bar.
